UpFront MBA scholarship

Managers from New Zealand are being invited to apply for valuable scholarship at top business school in Europe.
The James Stuckey scholarship is offered by Cranfield School of Management in the UK and provides £10,000 ($28,000) towards the £25,000 ($70,000) tuition fees of the one-year full time programme. Cranfield was named UK’s top business school by the Economist Intelligence Unit which ranks MBA providers.
The scholarship was set up by Derek Battle (former chairman of Bullough Plc) to honour his grandfather James Stuckey who was pioneering farmer in New Zealand. He chose Cranfield because of his positive experience with its MBA graduates in his company. Previous winners of the award include David Ryan, now senior adviser with the Crown Company Monitoring Advisory Unit, who cites Cranfield’s outstanding reputation, large number of electives, mix of international students, location just outside London and links with industry as amongst its attractions.
“Particular highlights from my coursework included taking part in mock press conference, working on real life business projects for number of charities and businesses, and learning presentation skills – all very useful for my future work,” says Ryan.
He reckons his return on investment has been “more than satisfactory” and the scholarship made it more realistic proposition.
Deadline for applications is 24 May for the September 2004/05 programme. Details can be found at www.cranfieldMBA.info or contact [email protected]
